BRS Media Submits Formal Comments to ICANN Regarding the Community Priority Evaluation for .RADIO Top-Level Domain

BRS Media, a diverse and growing media e-commerce firm that assists traditional and interactive media companies build and brand on the power of the Internet, announced today that it submitted to ICANN (Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers) formal correspondence, commenting on the pending Community Priority Evaluation (CPE) of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) application [1-1083-39123] for the .RADIO New Top-Level Domain.

Supporting analysis & comments were also submitted by Minds + Machines, whose correspondence to ICANN regarding the Community application of the EBU for the .RADIO TLD mirrors that of BRS Media. BRS Media correspondence dated March 5, 2014: http://dotRad.io/correspondence

“It is our belief that in an attempt to game the rules for a desired outcome, the EBU claimed a generic term (Radio) as a community name,” remarked George T. Bundy, Chairman & CEO of BRS Media Inc. "The attempt to re-categorize and claim the term Radio, as its community name is in fact, what the CPE process was designed to prevent. Therefore, we expect the EBU’s application will not prevail the Community Priority Evaluation.”

Last week, ICANN published the first four results of the CPE process. None of the four applicants, .TAXI, .TENNIS, .IMMO & .MLS, prevailed in their attempt to win a Community Priority Evaluation.

Bundy concluded, "The generic term ‘RADIO’, like those listed above, is not a fellowship or membership community. Radio, a general term that has been in use for over a 100 years, describes a diverse and broad audio-based industry of individual broadcasters, amateur operators, high school and college educational institutions, public broadcasters, commercial broadcasting companies, Internet-based online webcasters, and many others. This description, along with detailed comments filed with ICANN provide clear evidence of this fact, and based on the results so far in the CPE process, it is inconceivable that the EBU will be able to score the requisite fourteen points to survive the Community Priority Evaluation.”

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
